Reference characters indicate the same or similar elements throughout the drawings. As is customary, the term “distal” refers to a location farther from the user of the instrument and the term “proximal” refers to a location that is closer to the user of the instrument.
  • A circular stapling instrument 10 is shown in FIG. 1A and has a handle portion 12, a tubular body portion 14, and an anvil assembly 20. The anvil assembly 20 is at the distal end of the instrument, and is movable toward and away from the tubular body portion. The handle portion 12 has at least one movable handle 33 for actuating the firing of staples and the cutting of tissue. A knob 35 is at the proximal end of the handle portion 12 and can be turned to move the anvil assembly 20 toward the tubular body portion or away from the tubular body portion. A buttress is shown generally disposed around the shaft 23.
  • Although a circular stapling apparatus is described in detail herein, in any of the embodiments disclosed herein, the stapling apparatus may be a linear endoscopic stapler, a linear stapler for open surgery, a transverse surgical stapler, or other surgical device. Circular staplers are disclosed in U.S. Pat. No. 5,915,616, the disclosure of which is hereby incorporated by reference in its entirety. Endoscopic staplers are disclosed in U.S. Pat. Nos. 6,330,965 and 6,241,139, the disclosures of which are hereby incorporated by reference in their entirety. Transverse surgical staplers are disclosed in U.S. Pat. No. 5,964,394, the disclosure of which is hereby incorporated by reference in its entirety. U.S. Pat. No. 7,334,717, the disclosure of which is hereby incorporated by reference in its entirety, discloses a stapler intended for open surgical procedures.
  • The tubular body portion can be flexible, straight or curved, or otherwise configured for the surgical procedure. The distal end of the tubular body portion 14 has a staple cartridge 32 disposed therein. The staple cartridge has a circular array of staple retaining slots 52 defined in a tissue contacting surface 51 of the staple cartridge 32. The anvil assembly 20 has an anvil member 21 with a circular array of staple forming recesses that correspond to the staple retaining slots 52. The anvil assembly also has a shaft 23 that connects with a rod 15 in the tubular body portion 14.
  • A staple pusher is disposed in the staple cartridge 32 and has a plurality of fingers or pushers 65 that are aligned with the staple receiving slots 52. The staple pusher is a conical member that is disposed in the staple cartridge. The pusher is movable in the distal direction to drive the staples out of the cartridge and toward the staple forming recesses in the anvil member 21. There are three circular rows of staples that are driven into tissue, as shown in FIG. 2. A knife has a cylindrical shape and is disposed radially inwardly of the pusher. The knife is mounted to a surface of the staple pusher so that after the staples are driven through tissue and into the staple forming recesses, the tissue radially interior to the circular rows of staples is cut. The staple cartridge 32 can be a removable and replaceable assembly so that the rest of the circular stapling apparatus can be re-sterilized and reused, or the circular stapling apparatus 10 can be reused on the same patient without re-sterilization.
  • The rod 15 inside the tubular body portion 14 extends proximally through the apparatus to the knob 35. The distal end of the knob 35 is attached to a member that has a helical groove defined on a surface thereof. A pin attached to a proximal end of the rod is disposed in the groove so that, as the knob 35 is rotated, the pin travels in the groove, moving the rod 15 in a distal or proximal direction. The anvil shaft 23, which is attached to the rod, is also moved, moving the anvil assembly 20 toward or away from the tubular body portion 14. When the knob 35 is rotated in a first direction, the anvil assembly is moved away from the tubular body portion, allowing tissue to be placed between the anvil assembly and the tissue contacting surface of the staple cartridge. When the knob 35 is rotated in a second direction, the anvil assembly is moved toward the tubular body portion, allowing the tissue to be clamped between the staple cartridge and anvil assembly. Other means of moving the anvil assembly with respect to the tubular body portion are contemplated. It is also contemplated, in any of the embodiments disclosed herein, that the instrument 10 can be connected to a motorized assembly. For example, a motorized assembly can be provided in the handle portion 12, and power can be supplied from external sources, or from a battery provided in the handle portion 12.
  • The pivotable handle or handles 33 can be connected to a tubular member or pair of bands that are attached to the staple pusher 64 by, for example, linkages or the like. In this way, when the handle or handles are depressed 33, the tubular member or bands are advanced, advancing the staple pusher 64, driving the staples through tissue and against the anvil, and advancing the knife to cut tissue radially inward of the rows of surgical staples.
  • As shown in FIG. 2, a buttress fixation system 70 is provided on the staple cartridge 32. The staple cartridge has a plurality of staple receiving slots 52 defined in a tissue contacting surface 51 therein. Only a portion of the staple receiving slots 52 are shown in FIG. 2, but it is understood that the rows of staple receiving slots 52 extend all the way around the circular face of the anvil member 21. The staple receiving slots 52 have an inner row 53, middle row 54, and an outer row 55. The middle row 54 of staple receiving slots 52 includes at least one notch 56 extending outwardly away from the rod 15 of the apparatus. This at least one notch 56 receives an anchor, which is a strap, cable, wire, thread, strand, or the like, which can be for example, a length of suture 72. The notch 56 is configured to have a shape that pinches the length of suture 72. For example, the notch 56 will have a first portion 56 a with a first dimension, and a second portion 56 b with a second dimension. The first dimension is smaller than the diameter, or cross-sectional dimension, of the length of suture, so that the length of suture is retained in the notch. The second dimension is bigger than the first dimension, allowing the length of suture to move out of the notch. In any of the embodiments disclosed herein, the notch can have a shape like the number 8, the shape of the letter V, or any shape for retaining and releasing the anchor, or suture.
  • The anchor 72, which can be a strap, cable, wire, thread, strand, suture, or the like, is desirably a bioabsorbable suture, which can be made from polyglycolic acid, glycolide trimethylene carbonate, polylactic acid, or any of the bioabsorbable materials from which sutures, buttress materials, and other medical implants, can be made. Animal derived materials, which are known in the art, are also contemplated for the buttress and/or anchor. In any of the embodiments disclosed herein, the suture can be a material that is not bioabsorbable. In certain embodiments, the anchor is attached to the stapler and removed with the stapler after the staples have been fired. In certain embodiments, the anchor is bioabsorbable and is attached to the buttress, or is formed as part of the buttress, and is left in the body of the patient. Alternatively, the surgeon can trim the anchor or anchors during surgery.
  • The length of suture can be attached to the buttress 74 by welding, or using an adhesive, or by heat pressing, or any known method. Alternatively, the length of suture can be integrally formed with the buttress 74, as an extension thereof. For example, the buttress 74 can be formed as a circular disc, as shown in FIG. 3, and can have straps that extend from the outer edge 76 thereof. The straps can separate from the buttress 74 at perforations, or by virtue of the bioabsorbability of the material. For example, the straps can be made much thinner than the buttress 74. In another example, the straps or length of suture can be trimmed by the surgeon after the staples are fired and the stapling instrument 10 is removed from the site. The anchor 72 or anchors 72 can be one or more lengths of suture material. That is, the anchor 72 can be a single piece of suture, portions of which extending into the notch or notches 56 to retain the buttress. In any of the embodiments disclosed herein, the anchor 72 comprises a plurality or pieces of suture material that extend into corresponding notches.
  • In any of the embodiments disclosed herein, a fastener can be attached to the anchor, the surgical instrument 10 or both, to help retain the anchor and the buttress on the instrument. For example, the fastener can be an aglet or crush ring or clip attached to the anchor at a location adjacent the notch.
  • The buttress fixation system 70 allows the buttress 70 to be released from the stapler so that the stapler 10 can be removed from the site. The staple pusher 64 has a plurality of pushers or fingers 65, each of which extend into the staple receiving slots 52 to eject the staples. The fingers have a shape that corresponds to the shape of the staple receiving slot 52. The fingers 65 that are disposed in the staple receiving slot or slots 52 that has the notch 56 have a corresponding extension 67 that is disposed in the notch 56. As the staple pusher 64 is advanced, the fingers advance, and the finger or fingers 65 that has the extension 67 will push the length of suture, strap, or the like, from the notch 56.
  • In any of the embodiments disclosed herein, the buttress itself can be made from a variety of biologically compatible materials, and can be made of the same material as the anchor. In certain preferred embodiments, the buttress material is a bio-absorbable material such as polyglycolic acid, glycolide trimethylene carbonate copolymer, polylactic acid, glycolide dioxanone and trimethylene carbonate copolymer, blends and copolymers, or any of the bio-absorbable materials used to make sutures, buttresses, and other medical implants. Non-absorbable materials can be used such as polypropylene or polyester. The buttress can be made from animal derived materials, which are known in the art. For example, the buttress material can be made from porcine or bovine tissue, such as porcine dermal collagen, collagen from bovine pericardium, or other materials. The buttress can be made by extrusion, felting, knitting or braiding, molding, non-woven techniques such as melt blown or spun bonding methods, or other methods. The buttress can be porous or non-porous. The buttress can be a foam or mesh. The buttress can have layers of different materials or be some other form of composite material. The buttress material can be made as described in U.S. patent application Ser. No. 13/293,215, the entire disclosure of which is hereby incorporated by reference herein.
  • In any of the embodiments disclosed herein, the buttress 74 has a shape that discourages buckling or wrinkling of the buttress. For example, the buttress 74 shown in FIG. 3 has slits extending from the outer edge 76 thereof. Other slits or openings in the buttress 74 may be provided. The buttress 74 has a hole in its middle for allowing the shaft of the stapler to pass through.
  • In a further embodiment shown in FIG. 4, the circular stapling instrument 10 has two rows of staple receiving slots 152. The staple cartridge 132 has a tissue contacting surface 151 that defines an inner row 153 and an outer row 155 of staple receiving slots. Although only seven staple receiving slots are shown in FIG. 4, it is understood that the slots extend all the way around the tissue contacting surface of the stapler. At least one of the staple receiving slots in the inner row 153 has a notch 156 for the receipt of an anchor, length of suture, strap, wire etc, as described above in connection with FIGS. 2 and 3. The notch 156 has a first portion 156 a and second portion 156 b, as described above in connection with FIG. 2. This buttress fixation system 170 allows the buttress to be released from the stapler so that the stapler 10 can be removed from the site. The stapler is otherwise arranged as discussed above in connection with FIGS. 1 through 3. The staple pusher, such as pusher 64, is a conical member that is advanceable to eject the staples from the slots 152, and has a plurality of pushers or fingers 65, each of which extend into the staple receiving slots 152. The fingers have a shape that corresponds to the shape of the staple receiving slot 152. The fingers 65 that are disposed in the staple receiving slot or slots 152 that has the notch 156 have a corresponding extension 67 that is disposed in the notch 156. As the staple pusher is advanced, the fingers advance, and the finger or fingers 65 that has the extension 167 will push the length of suture, strap, or the like, from the notch 156. The buttress may be as shown in FIG. 3, or it may be any generally circular buttress, formed from any of the materials described above. The anchor is disposed in the notch to retain the buttress on the stapler, and can be attached to the buttress, or the stapler, as discussed above in connection with FIG. 3.
  • FIGS. 2 and 4 show the tissue contacting surface 51 or 151, and only one section of staple receiving slots 52 or 152. In certain embodiments, the buttress fixation system 70 or 170 has twelve staple receiving recesses distributed along the tissue contacting surface 51 or 151 and have the notch 56 or 156. More or fewer such notches can be provided to securely attach the buttress to the stapling instrument.
  • One of the fingers 65 of the staple pusher is shown in FIG. 5, and includes the protrusion 67 for pushing the anchor out of the notch 156. In any of the embodiments disclosed herein, the stapler includes one or more pusher members for ejecting the staples from the staple receiving slots 52, 152 and has a finger 65 that correspond to each of the slots. The fingers that correspond to the slots that have the notch for retaining the anchor have protrusions 67 for pushing the anchor out of the slot.
  • As shown in FIG. 6, the buttress fixation system may be as described above in connection with FIGS. 1 through 5, with anchors for retaining the buttress. The buttress 274 itself includes tabs 278 at the outer edge 276 of the buttress, which can be formed by providing slits extending from the outer edge of the buttress, or by forming tabs that extend outwardly from the outer edge 278. Tabs may also be formed so as to extend from the lower surface of the buttress 274, adjacent an inner row or outer row of slots. The tabs are arranged to extend into at least some of the staple receiving slots, such as slots 152 or 52 of FIGS. 2 and 4, and an anchor extends into the notch associated with at least some of the slots, such as notches 156 or 56. In this way, the anchor frictionally retains the buttress onto the stapler, by engaging the tab 278 of the buttress. In any of the embodiments disclosed herein, the buttress fixation system includes a buttress with tabs, anchors, or both, for releasably retaining the buttress.
  • In any of the embodiments disclosed herein, the tissue contacting surface of the staple cartridge and/or the tissue contacting surface of the anvil member, has a stepped or tapered cross-sectional shape. Desirably, one or more rows of staple receiving slots 52 are defined in a surface that has a different height than the surface in which one or more other rows of staple receiving slots are defined. In addition, in any of the embodiments disclosed herein, the size of the staples in certain of the staple receiving slots may be different than the size of the staples in other of the staple receiving slots. For example, the inner row of staples can be smaller in size (such as leg length) than the outer row of staples (which has a greater leg length) or, if there are three rows of staple receiving slots, the inner row of staples cam be smaller than the middle row of staples and the outer row of staples.
  • In any of the embodiments disclosed herein, the staple receiving slots can have a curved or angled shape. This allows the staple receiving slots to be positioned more closely to one another in the staple cartridge and/or anvil. The staple forming recesses on the anvil member can have a corresponding shape so that the recesses can be more closely positioned with respect to one another on the anvil member. The staples desirably have a corresponding shape.
  • Although circular stapling instruments are described above, the stapling instrument could have rows of staples, staple forming recesses, and staple receiving slots that do not define a full circle, but rather a semi-circular, oval, or semi-oval shape. The stapling instrument could have rows of staples, staple forming recesses, and staple receiving slots that form some other shape, such as various polygonal shapes, or partially polygonal shapes. While the present invention has been described in several embodiments, it is not the intention to restrict or in any way limit the scope of the appended claims. Additional advantages and modifications may readily appear to those skilled in the art.
